FOR FROWn lines





Daxxify is the newest FDA-approved neuromodulator for the treatment of frown lines and wrinkles.  Like other popular neurotoxin injectables such as Botox or Dysport, Daxxify is made from botulinum toxin.  Neuromodulators work by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles, resulting in decreased facial movements and smoother skin.  What makes Daxxify different is a peptide that is added to the vehicle that prolongs the efficacy of the active molecule.  Previously, results lasted 4 months, but Daxxify can last up to 6-9 months on average.  That means fewer trips to the office for treatment!

Daxxify is an excellent  solution to frown lines and wrinkles that can make a person look tired or angry and older than their actual age.  By temporarily reducing facial movement, Daxxify can leave you with a refreshed, youthful appearance.  And when injected by experienced, highly trained professionals like the physicians at Midwest Dermatology, you will see natural looking results that will not freeze your facial features, but instead leave them softer and more relaxed.





Daxxify is used to smooth out wrinkles and lines on the face, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance.   It is most commonly used for frown lines – the deep wrinkles that form between the eyes from years of squinting and other facial movements that produce the “elevens” that make a person look angry or tired.


The effects of Daxxify typically start to appear within a few days to a week after treatment, providing quick and noticeable results


Many younger patients have learned that a head start is just what the doctor ordered!  Prejuvenation is a early approach to preventing lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place.  Daxxify proactively prevents squinting and other unwanted facial expressions that cause wrinkles to form.  This approach focuses on maintaining younger looking skin rather than turning back the hands of time.  Both approaches are safe and effective uses for Daxxify treatment.

safe and effective

Daxxify is administered by your board certified Midwest Dermatology physician at every visit.  Because you are seeing a professional with training and experience at the highest level, your risk of serious side effects is minimal. Daxxify is considered safe and effective.

a non-surgical approach to treating lines and wrinkles

Daxxify is a non-surgical treatment that can be performed in a short office visit, without the need for anesthesia.  Using Daxxify, our physicians will help you meet your medical cosmetic goals while saving you trips to the office with its longer lasting formula.



Your Daxxify appointment is relatively simple and treatment takes only a few minutes in the office.  During the Daxxify procedure, your Midwest Dermatology physician will use a fine needle to inject a small amount into the targeted muscle on your face. Depending on the areas being treated, multiple injections may be needed.  Most people describe the injection sensation as a mild discomfort, and no anesthesia is required.

Patients may experience some redness, swelling or bruising at the injection site lasting for a few hours after treatment. You can return to your normal activities immediately following your procedure.  Look for the effects of  Daxxify treatment to begin to appear within a few days to a week after your treatment.  At that time you will begin to notice a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and a more relaxed and refreshed overall appearance.  Results last on average ranging from six to nine months, but do vary by patient.
